hCG Physician Training with the IAPAM

hCG Physician Training with the IAPAM

The IAPAM reports on the dangers of improperly sourced hCG for medical weight loss programs, and educates doctors on how to safely source hCG and how to effectively and profitably deliver an hCG Weight Loss Program to their patients. One critical success factor is to complete expert training through programs like the IAPAM's hCG Physician Training Program.

hCG for weight loss is everywhere on the internet. One cannot google “hcg” without seeing these sensational headlines: “Lose 1-2 LBS/DAY Buy hCG,” “Lose 23 lbs in 23 Days For Only $70, “or “Buy hCG Here Save Up To 72%.” However, as Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM comments, "it is quite amazing that so many people want to put their long-term health at risk by answering an internet or Facebook ad, or watching a YouTube video on hCG." It is equally disconcerting that so many physicians launch hCG Medical Weight Management Programs, without being properly trained in administering an hCG Protocol, sourcing hCG, understanding patient selection criteria and patient testing, and the common medical contraindications for hCG."

To meet the need for this type of in-depth hCG training, the IAPAM's has developed an exclusive program for physicians wishing to add hCG and Medically Supervised Weight Loss Programs to their existing practices. The IAPAM's hCG Weight Loss Training is offered the Friday before each of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona. The IAPAM's next hCG training sessions will be held on October 22, 2010 and December 3, 2010 in Scottsdale.

Mr. Russell also comments on the controversy surrounding homeopathic hCG, in his most recent offering to the Aesthetic Medicine News: "Homeopathic vs Pharmaceutical hCG." There is a myriad of “hCG” distributors in cyberspace, who do not warn consumers about the potential health risks associated taking hCG and engaging in the associated Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). "The bottom line is that hCG is an FDA controlled substance and requires the prescription of a physician. You have no idea what is actually in the hCG you buy on the internet, and you could be risking your health by doing so," cautions Russell. The IAPAM faculty has developed a program where all the critical issues associated with hCG and the IAPAM's Exclusive hCG Protocol are discussed. The IAPAM is the only physician association to offer training on how to safely and successfully add hCG and Medical Weight Management to a medical practice.
